This is a delicious and quick cake to make when you just want something to fill the gap.


Ingredients (serves 1)

  • 3 tbsp cake mix (I used Greens All purpose cake mix)
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Strawberry essence, to taste
  • Cooking spray (optional but will help with cleaning later on)
  • red or pink food colouring, optional

Method

  1. Spray your mug with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together the cake mix and water in the mug (or a small bowl).
  3. Add strawberry essence to taste. Add food colouring (optional).
  4. Microwave for approx. 1 minute.
  5. Turn out into a bowl and enjoy with cream or ice-cream.

Notes... The photo is a double receipe with cream. It was cooked for 1 1/2 minutes in an 800w microwave.

  • Easy and fast for when you need cake and need it now.

  • Some comments have said it has worked – so will give it a try. All the other cup recipes I have tried from here have been miserable flops. Probably my bad cooking.
